Services for businesses and employers

We have a dedicated Employer Engagement Team that are committed to building relationships with employers to enable them to work with local cohorts of young people.


Recruiting staff and vacancy matching 

With a team of over 60 frontline advisers delivering over 10,000 careers interventions to over 3000 young people every year, C+K is ideally placed to match your vacancies with suitable candidates free of charge. Recruitment of new employees can be a time-consuming and expensive task. By working with C+K, we can develop tailored engagement programmes that raise awareness of vacancies and encourage applications.    

Virtual work experience and raising awareness of your organisation

Our work experience offer allows employers to showcase their organisation to young people and link in with the workforce of the future.  We are currently working with organisations to deliver virtual work experience which allows young people to  experience the world of work but ensure that they stay Covid-safe. 

Advisers working directly in school provide opportunities for employers to raise awareness of their organisation via mock interviews, careers events, or taking part in dragon den-style enterprise events. Some companies use these opportunities to demonstrate their CSR and C+K can help develop activities for this purpose.

Opportunity events 

In response to the rapidly evolving situation with the current Covid pandemic, and yet recognising the importance of ensuring that young people still have access to valuable information about career options - we have taken our progression events online this year.  We offer businesses and employers the opportunity to exhibit at our events, if you would like to exhibit please get in touch. 

Business advisory group 

This group of employers works with us to assist the Board and Executive Team by offering strategic insight alongside practical advice around the delivery of careers programmes, adding an employer voice to the labour market research and intelligence underpinning our careers products and helping us to provide or facilitate support to careers events and activities.

If you would like to discuss how we can help your business or organisation please contact Tanya Barry, Employer Engagement Manager on 01484 242000 or email using the details below.
